Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sympathetic_Reaction

    Sympathetic_Reaction LE Book Reviewer

    The welcome page looks great...shame the rest of the website is dead..

    Well, if they can't even be bothered to contact an MOD Dept* to get the un-watermarked images...

    msr

    *A Department I have contacted in the past and who have been more than helpful.
     
  3. For all the fcuking about and money its costing, they would of been better off giving everyone £100's worth of B&Q vouchers and putting a plaque on a park bench somewhere.
     
  4. As sombody had in their signature on here "TA 100 - Somebody should tell the Government its not a manning aspiration"
     
  5. So why have they got a regular - KRH - Guidon as the first image?
     
  6. Or a US UAV as the second???
     
  7. This doesn't look like the official site (if there is one) which I assume would use the TA 100 logo etc.

    Up Close Promotions www.upclosepromotions.co.uk claim to have the TA and Sabre as clients and to be organising a TA100 military tattoo at Durham Castle.

    So, sort of official.
